- Pressure on core yields
Exposure datamonthly weekly
The Fund posted a positive performance but slightly trailed its reference indicator. Oil and gold prices fell sharply in July. While oil prices were hit by a rising supply following the Vienna Summit, in the wake of the increase in Saudi Arabian production, the resumption of Libyan exports and discussions on reducing US strategic reserves, gold prices were pushed lower by the economic stimulus measures announced by the Chinese government. In this context, the Fund proved resilient, largely thanks to our oil refining and marketing companies (Marathon Petroleum), as well as our oil production and exploration companies, especially those in the Permian Basin (SM Energy, PDC Energy). The Fund’s performance was also boosted by its investments in commodity-related industries like semiconductors (Siltronic). On the other hand, the fall in our gold stocks (Goldcorp) proved costly. We have increased our equity exposure, which now stands at a high level.
